What is No Win, No Fee?

If you are looking to make a personal injury claim, but are concerned about the large legal fees that might be involved, no win, no fee might be the answer.

No win no fee** arrangements are common between personal injury solicitors** and their clients and were introduced due to the cut in legal aid funding and to ensure that everyone has access to justice regardless of their financial means. There is no means test to enter into a no win no fee* arrangement and therefore anyone, regardless of their financial situation, can enter into one. Contact our expert team here to discuss how we might help you get the compensation you deserve.

Conditional Fee Agreements

No win no fee** arrangements are formally known as Conditional Fee Agreements or CFAs. Under the terms of the no win no fee* arrangement it is only your solicitor’s costs that will be covered. Disbursements such as court fees and barrister’s fees will not be covered and should the case go to court and be unsuccessful, you will be liable for the defendant’s legal costs as these will also not be covered by the no win no fee* arrangement. Accordingly, your solicitor** will assist you in obtaining After the Event Insurance (ATE) to protect you from being liable for these costs which could be substantial.

If you would like to make a personal injury claim then you should speak to one of our personal injury solicitors** in Sheffield who will deal with your case on a no win no fee* basis. You should ensure that they are instructed within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the injury (or three years from their 18th birthday in the case of a child). Any claim brought outside of this time will require special permission from the court and the cost of making this application is unlikely to be covered by any no win no fee* arrangement.

What Do I Pay On The Result Of My No Win, No Fee Personal Injury Claim?

A No win no fee agreement is subject to our panel’s Sheffield personal injury solicitor agreeing to take on your case and appropriate insurance cover being in place. When a compensation claim is successful, there will be a Success Fee. Success Fees will not exceed 25% of recovered damages including VAT. This fee will be subject to your individual circumstances. There are a few rare exceptions, which the panel solicitor for Sheffield can explain to you in more detail. If no damages are recovered, then no fee is payable by you. Your agreement will be direct with the panel solicitor in Sheffield, who is a third party and not owned or employed by us. Early termination fees may apply if you decide not to proceed or fail to follow reasonable legal advice. Such fees would be based on an hourly fee rate as set by that panel solicitor. We may receive a payment from the Sheffield personal injury solicitors to whom we pass details if your case is accepted.
